Default Figured out making bowstrings

Finally figured out how to make real continuous loop bowstrings. Using dacron fishing line as the string material served with serving thread from a homemade serving tool. Made a 14 strander that allowed me to shoot one of the oak bows in earnest. Those things pack serious power! Though My form is rusty I got popped in the forearm a couple times which was not fun. Feel really good about the quality of the strings should be just fine
